Subject: Not Crimson, but a deep Mediterranean tan
call me too thought out, but here we have a film with a quintessential dose of the psychotronic. one mickey hargitay film is all you need. if you've ever encountered the trailer for this you can be forgiven for assuming the movie is some early type of hong kong feature. However the leering, oiled host of the proto-'scooby do' passel of stranded euro models in a van is not an asian guy, but rather a bodybuilder from the spaghetti sword and sandal set. His nearly nonverbal starring role here might have something to do with the noisome Italian sex commedia Jayne Mansfield was engaged in around the same time.
According to the creases of the plot, the resident count (Hargitay) is possessed by the spirit of an earlier count of the castle, whose innate love of bodybuilding was repressed in the middle ages with devastating results upon his reincarnation in Hargitay. He instinctively knows his way around the dungeon's torture equipment in his ancient castle, but can't keep from admiring his modern new body-an acting decision allowing Hargitay to do the lasciviating pose-down thing and flex ad libitum during his crimson execution of his muscly tasks.

Subject: If you've got 82 minutes to kill . . .
It's got cheesy music, cheesy sets, and cheesy actors -- but there's a bit of innocent charm to this 1965 horror film set in an old castle. Sure, most of the characters are killed off. But they're done so without a great deal of blood. The good guy and gal win out in the end, and there's no sinister turn after The End pops on the screen. Several times the soundtrack repeats as if the editor didn't realize the needle was stuck, but I'm guessing it was actually done on purpose. Odd stuff.
